Description2004-2010 Senate Staggering:
First Class (2002, 2004, 2008) – 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 12, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23
Second Class (2002, 2006, 2010) – 2, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 24, 25

"In the 2000 [ed. - Probably 1992, the 2000 vote was a related topic] general election, the voters approved a Constitutional amendment that eliminated the “holdover” provision. Now, in first election after reapportionment (and as occurred in 2002), all Senate seats are subject to election in the new districts. The Reapportionment Commission determines those senators who will serve two-year terms by identifying the 12 new Senate seats with the smallest percentage of population that participated in a Senate election in the year 2000 [ed. - might be a typo] and designating those seats to have two-year terms that expire in 2004."

1984-2000 Senate Staggering:
First Class (1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998) – 1, 4, 6, 7, 10, 13, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23
Second Class (1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000) – 2, 3, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 20, 24, 25

"In 1978 a state Constitutional Convention amended the Constitution to stagger Senators’ terms. Following the 1978 election, the state divided the members of the Senate into two classes. The first class consisted of the 12 senators elected with the highest percentage of votes in their district. The first class won full four-year terms. The other 13 members of the Senate became the second class, won shortened two-year terms, and had to run again in 1980 to win full four-year terms.

The Convention also added a provision to the Constitution that allowed senators to complete their term of office after reapportionment. The “holdover” provision authorized the reapportionment Commission to state the district a senator would represent for the remainder of the senator’s term, if the senator’s term extended past the general election at which reapportionment occurred."
